I definitely prefer, and I hate the term, fat woman. Cant really say for sure why, although I suspect they are far more honest, and real than others. I live in an area where the norm is to try to be stick thin, guys and girls, and I dont like it. Many act very shallow. Its all about how you are perceived. Give me a nice round lady any day! Oh, and ive gotten a lot of guff over the years from friends for my choice or woman. I tell them that if Im happy, they should be happy for me.
